  • "Hailed by the London Times as a "brilliant masterpiece" and by E.M. Forster as a work that "revolutionized the art of biography," this book examines the life, but more so the psychology, of Queen Victoria. Strachey's critical yet sympathetic look at her childhood, her marriage to Albert, her colorful court circle, and the tumults of her reign is a lively and vivid portrait of a complex woman."@en
  • "Queen Victoria, born Alexandrina Victoria (1819 - 1901) ruled the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 1837 until her death. At the age of 18 she inherited the throne, ruling for 63 years, longer than any other British monarch - the longest reign of any female monarch in history. She is remembered for her strict and stodgy moral standards, not to mention having an era named after her. Lytton Strachey (1880 - 1832) is remembered not only for his brilliant biography of Queen Victoria, but for changing the nature of biography all together. His new school approach incorporated psychological insight and a touching sympathy, coupled with a detached irreverence for his subject. Until this time, biographies - especially of dead monarchs - were dull, drawn-out eulogies with very little artistic flair. The young Victoria, whose uncles had been scandalous louts, was reared under the tutelage of a strict governess, and she carried her propriety with her throughout her long reign. Shortly before becoming Queen she fell in love with her first Cousin, Prince Albert, an intelligent and sensitive man who was in love with the arts. They were married, and she was blissfully happy - Albert, however, was miserable. England, after decades of political intrigue, war, and excessive spending, had grown weary of its monarchy, but Victoria wasn't derailed. She carried on, relying on Albert more and more, as his behind-the-scenes political power began to grow. Queen Victoria remained happy until 1861, when her beloved husband died, a tragedy which cast her into a prolonged mourning. It wasn't until Disraeli became Prime Minister and began to dote on her that she was revived. She would be named "Empress of India" (despite never having gone there), would survive seven failed assassination attempts, preside over the height of British innovation and Empire, and help restore the beleaguered image of the monarchy. She would commemorate Albert, turning his room into a shrine, and love him until the end. A Queen, yes, but a woman, a mother, and wife as well. At its center, Strachey's brilliant and moving biography is not only the portrait of England's most eternal queen, but a tender love story as well."@en
  • "We see Victoria as a strong-willed child with a famous temper, as the 18-year-old girl queen, as a monarch, wife, mother and widow."
  • "Levensbeschrijving van Victoria (koningin van Engeland ; 1819-1901)."
  • "In this book, we see Victoria as a strong-willed child with a famous temper, as the 18-year-old girl queen, as a monarch, wife, mother and widow. Lytton Strachey's acclaimed portrayal of Queen Victoria revolutionised the art of biography by using elements of romantic fiction and melodrama to create a warm, humorous and very human portrait of this iconic figure. Equally fascinating are the depictions of her relationships: with her governess "precious Lehzen", with Peel, Gladstone and Disraeli, with her beloved Albert and, in later life, her legendary devotion to her Highland servant John Brown, all of which show a different side of the staid, pious image that is so often attached to her. Awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Strachey's classic biography remains one of the best and most readable accounts of the Queen who defined an era."
